Bio:
It's been a long, long time... So much has changed... Where do I begin to tell my story on a virtual world of amazing tales based on the works of a genius?

I started writing Lord of the Rings fanfiction in June 2007 due to my friend arulia34's influence. I don't believe she has any stories on here at the moment, that she's rewriting them or something along those lines. I've written a myriad of stories about Lord of the Rings and I have also posted some original works on here - personally I believe them to be of better quality but I'll let you be the judge of that :)

I do have to admit that Lord of the Rings has been a rather important part of my life, it gave me something to run away to when life became difficult and then when it could help me no longer, it showed be stronger outlets to help myself cope - some of them not the best of ideas but I feel that LOTR has pulled me from that dark place once more and I think I'm here to stay.

I'm currently rewriting my Lira Lies series as an original story that will most likely be compressed. Some of the stories on here make very little sense but I would recommend them to anyone looking for a strong attempt at a masterpiece by a thirteen year old trying to prove she can write amazing stories.

I'll stop this rant for now and I hope that if you give my stories a chance that you'll let me know what you think. I hope everyone is having a good day :) Lira

Marko's evil, he dies, he can't live, if you let him live then i'll kill him. He doesn't harm my boys and gets away with it! Nobody does! *glares evilly* Except in fanfic coz it's not true, that completely defies what i just said. Talk to ya soon - Li

Author's Response: Heh heh, I forgot to give you a virtual cookie last time *Hands over two* lol, baying for Marko\'s blood ALREADY!? Hmm...Not ENITRELY sure what Elrond will say about the brands...could be interesting to write!

I miss ya lotz, stuck at my grandparents' house and there's this dark aura in my grandads study but a recent event explains why, he carked it on Saturday night so im staying in NZ for another week and a half, that's why i haven't been posting and i can't get into my emails either so i can't write to you. Hope to talk to ya soon - Li

Author's Response: *Gasps* *Huggles* You poor thing! And so close to Christmas! My great-gran died the day after Boxing Day, so I know\r\nhow you feel!\r\nAw, I miss you loads too, things aren\'t the same without you bouncing around (Figuritivly)\r\nLOL, naturally, choose the one person who all the clues DON\'T point to.

Date: 13/01/08 Title: Chapter 8: 8. Avalanche!

1. Libren and Niphredil were adorable in this, poor Libren not being able to talk to her, so sweet!!
3. The Nazgul scene was pretty cool and i'm guessing that the elf was either Elladan or Elrohir and obviously their father is Elrond.

I reckon a fic about angels, demons, vampires, werewolves etc. would be good as!! Mainly coz of the vampires ^L^ I won't send Elrond after you today, i'll send . . . Jasper after you, he'd be fun. I'm soo mean sometimes *evil grins* Talk to ya soon, perhaps tomorrow - Li

Author's Response: :O YOU THOUGHT IT WAS \'DAN OR \'RO?! *Shakes head* totally wrong. COMPLETELY wrong. You could not be\r\nmore wrong if you tried (Ok, you could\'ve randomly have said Frodo, which would\'ve been worse, but still! \r\nI agree, poor Libren! I torment him so...HEY! Stop being mean and sending people after me >.< lol

Marko should be killed by Glorfy. The other elf is the same one that you had us try and guess the other week and i'm beginning to think it's Legolas but i'm gonna go with another of Leggy's brothers. Do i get a cookie?? Talk to ya soon - Li

Author's Response: I agree, Marko should be killed by Glorfindel, but he can\'t be *Zips mouth* And yet again you are incorrect.\r\nThe elf from chapter eight is NOT the elf in chapter nine XD Just to confuse :) *Hands over cookies* Hannon\r\nlle for reviewing mellon nin!

Seth should be kiled be having his ear cut off and it getting infected, that answer is obvious mate. Glorion showing up as a slave . . . interesting, very interesting. And yes, this chapter was good and one day you're not going to think that about any of your work because it's all brilliant and i know that you know it. I must admit, that little girl is awesome, i can so totally imagine allowing a little girl to order him around and when he knelt down beside Glorion, it's just woah, totally Elladan. Anyway, i should run, there'sa couple of things i need to do - Li

Author's Response: lol, oh, is it THAT obvious huh? lol, I love Elladan being ordered around by this little kid. And :D Thanks!

Here's a question for you mate, why do i constantly think that Glorion is Legolas' brother?? Maybe i shouldn't have been climbing in those trees yesterday . . . meh, i'm a danger magnet, life ain't fun without a bit of danger! ^L^ This was good and now i'm sad for Ro, 'tis not fair to him. Now i wanna know when there's gonna be a chapter about Glorfy and whoever he's with, don't remember, might have to read that again . . . See ya laterz and thanks for the new chapter, thought i'd go insane without something to read!! - Li

Author's Response: Chapter about Glorfindel\'s going to be the next one. And no, Gloríon is not Legolas\' brother, lol

This was awesome!! Poor Rethan though, he got beat by a rock . . . Anyways, to answer your question, it's completely up to you I suppose, i'll miss the drunk-guy-that-Leggy-killed though but that's only because it was funny when he died. I am SOOOOO glad you updated, i was thinking about it the other night and I could barely remember what it was called, it's been so long! I hope your summer gets better and hopefully we'll be able to catch up at some point. Hope to talk soon - Li

Author's Response: Yep, Rethan got chunched by a rock XD I'll be able to update soon, when I've done my big massive edit thing which will be done by Saturday

Summary: **ON HOLD** It is two years since the War of the Ring ended, and Aragorn is starting to miss his old life. He invites Faramir to go on a short hunting trip with him, just to get away from the city. Sounds like fun, so Faramir agrees. But this innocent little trip will ge very wrong when they are betrayed by someone they both trusted with thier lives.

I haven't read any of your stuff in ages, mainly coz i'm horrible and i keep ignoring this fic everytime you update. I'm sorry, but this is good, when i saw the word counts for some of the chapters i jsut about dropped dead! In chapters this story is shorter than my latest Eternal Nights but in words it runs circles around it, kinda. I think i shall keep reading this, it's too interesting to ignore - Li

Author's Response: I\'m glad you find it interesting. I\'ll try and update it every week or so, (really depends on school *gag*). Sorry I haven\'t reviewed on any of your stories recently either. I\'ve been really busy and had very little time to even READ anything. Hope you continue to enjoy the story.

God this reminded me of me. Orlando Bloom inspires loads of stuff but i never really drag him into my writing which i really should, maybe that's what i could work on when i've finished TDHOA.

Yeah, when i was reading this i'm just like, Year Thirteen . . . OH RIGHT NZ has year thirteen. My cousin's in year thirteen this year and i envy you people, you don't start until february, well, he doesn't anyway.

I'm in NZ all the time and i found my passion for him there, i think it's some weird pairing between him and NZ that helps people find what they are possibly detined to find.

I just have one question: is this finished yet?? I wanna keep reading it if it isn't. Dunno what else to say . . . LANDO ROX!!!! Hwo bout that?? - Li

Author's Response:

I've never written an actor fic yet. I have been thinking about it though. I don't start Uni until 25 February, and I'm wishing I could start sooner. Holidays are good, but as with all things, only in moderate doses.

This doesn't feel quite finished, but I'm just thinking of how to continue without waxing philosophical stuff about writing. And yes, Rock on, Orlando lovers!

I almost cried reading this. You talk about how Tolkien draws you into his stories well . . . youd do the same. Halfway through i said to myself 'I'm not doing anything until i finish this, it's too good and too intriguing to be distracted from'.

I've read a few of these now and i've written two, a one-shot and a continuous one and i've noticed that many have written stuff about how Tolkien's works . . . that's too wrong a word . . . creations are an escape. There are so many who take care in writing and reading about this world to escape the troubles that they face in reality and i am not ashamed to admit that i am one of those people. I applaudany who follow that same notion, if you could call it such a thing.

The quote you put at the end, it is very true. He left this world and now his son has taken over, editting The Silmarillion, The Children of Hurin and for memory The History of Middle-Earth. I just so deeply wish that he could be brought back for just one month or something like that so that those who appreciate his work for whatever reason will be able to talk with him about it, show him how much they deeply appreciate what he's contributed to not just the world of literature but to what i think could be history. I don't think there will ever be another fandom like that of Tolkien's.

Anyways, i suppose i should stop writing before my hands go numb. Hannon le - Li

Author's Response: I applogize for not replying to this earlier, I don\'t often check to see if I have reviews -_-\r\nThank you very, very much I am so glad to hear that you so enjoyed reading this but it was not my intention to make \r\nany one cry! lol. I do believe it takes a certain frame of mind to really get into the stories, It transcends simply being dismissed\r\nas \"Fantasy\" becuase it holds a great more depth than that in that many of the characters and situations are so well written and thought out that it becomes very \r\n\"real\" in its feel. Middle Earth is extremely complex, It is not meant to be underestimated and it demands to be studied really, lol.\r\nI know personally that it has taken my years in my writing to get this far and I still have a long ways to go, but it has always\r\nbeen a tremendous journey. I really do enjoy these challenges becuase they have me examine certain things that I\r\nwould not have otherwise given a great deal of thought too. Thank you very kindly for the review! It means alot :)

Author's Response: Thanks, Lira. People say that cell phones are evil, after all. I figured it would be a good thing to mess up a character\'s life.
